New today (and yesterday) from the Century:
Anthony B. Robinson on how to follow the leader: "Following doesn't command the interest that leading does. But following is crucial." (subscription required)
- Steve Thorngate on Rick Santorum's showing in Iowa: "In a midwestern state stacked with conservative evangelicals, Santorum
finished between the east-coast Mormon patrician and the antiwar guy who
wants to let drug users out of jail."
- Steve Woolley on supply clergy: "What are supply
clergy? Are they merely ordained persons who are authorized to use the
costume, magic words and hand motions needed to legitimize an hour of
worship while the life of the congregation goes along without them quite
well, thank you very much?"
